The Current


There is this current
that wakes me in the dark
Buzzes and Hums
Courses through me and says
OMMMM HUMMM AHHHHHHH
Wild electric
Death Dream Life Birth Love
Like swimming in deaths ocean
Trembling and raw
Would you sleep through your life?
You can't because Death will wake you up!
At 3AM in naked mind
Raw and trembling
It always comes back to this
Laughing and crying
No matter how I hide
No matter where I go
It will eventually not let me sleep
The current rises, rushes, breaks open
Moves me Makes me sing
I'm so sorry I try to go away!
Let this ocean be born in me
My Death, My Love, My Sweet
Lets dance together naked in the Night
Let us heal the world
And moan
